A struggling high street in Norfolk could lose another shop as an application is made to turn a store into flats.
Plans have been submitted to Breckland Council to turn the BWB Domestics electronic and repair shop, in Watton, into a first and second floor flat.
The documents have been submitted by a Jonathan Burton on behalf of an unknown applicant.
Last year the town lost its Lloyds bank leaving only a Barclays, with many having to travel to Dereham to use their bank.
It also lost its Post Office before a point was opened in Watton Edwards News on the High Street in February.

In 2017 the town also lost its main supermarket Budgens after the company went into administration.
The application is set to be discussed by Watton Town Council at the full council meeting on Tuesday, July 23.
